Fundraiser from Cambridgeshire Takes on The 60km Jurassic Coast Challenge for Charity

May 24, 2024

Andrew, from Grafham, Cambridgeshire, has completed the 60km Jurassic Coast Challenge in Dorset and has raised over £2,000 for the Bright Horizons Foundation for Children.

The trek took place on 18th May when Andrew accomplished the challenging 60km route in Dorset with his friend James to fundraise towards Bright Spaces for vulnerable children in the UK. The route began at Corfe Castle and continued to Swanage, Lulworth Cove, and Durdle Door, before continuing onward to the Weymouth finish line. The whole walk has a 1,700m of elevation making it a tough route to complete in just under 13 hours in total.

Andrew chose to take on the Jurassic Coast Challenge for the Foundation and fundraise as part of the Bright Horizons Foundation for Children’s ‘100 Your Way’ campaign.

In 2024 the Bright Horizons Foundation will open its 100th Bright Space in the UK to support vulnerable children. To celebrate this milestone, the Foundation has launched its 100 Your Way campaign, with a goal of raising £100,000.

Andrew, Head of Procurement at Bright Horizons said: “My aim was to achieve 100,000 steps. This has been my second Ultra event, in May 2022 I took on the Isle of Wight challenge, this was a continuous walk where I completed a total of 106km in 24 hours. I am proud to have completed this challenge with my friend James and raising money for the Foundation which makes such a positive impact on young lives.”

Emily Harris, from the Bright Horizons Foundation for Children said, “We are deeply grateful to Andrew and James for taking on this incredible challenge to fundraise for us. Every penny counts and helps us to make a difference to the lives of vulnerable children.”

The Foundation is focused on improving the lives of vulnerable children and families experiencing crisis and disadvantage. Its Bright Spaces are enriching play environments for children impacted by domestic violence, abuse, homelessness, parental imprisonment, and ill health, and are designed to help children heal from trauma through play.
